RHOC

Instagram Roundup:

This week was all about family time when it comes to your favorite reality TV stars and of course they posted pictures from their hangouts.

New Jersey Housewives and sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga celebrated their children’s birthdays together.

Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Conrad Empson spent some quality time with his mother.

Gina Kirschenheiter

Even though the Real Housewives of Orange County viewers are still “getting to know” Gina Kirchenheiter, it’s really not “shocking” that she and her husband Matt Kirschenheiter are divorcing. He hasn’t appeared on the show and he has an apartment in another city, that Gina admits she has never even seen.

Sure, everyone’s relationship is different, but that just seems like a lot with Gina raising three kids in Orange County. Of course, hindsight is 20/20 and it’s easy for us viewers to have an opinion as outsiders, but the women on the show were actually surprised when Gina shared her intention to divorce. Really? They didn’t see any red flags with their relationship at that time?

Vicki apologizes to Kelly - insincerely

Love her or hate her, longtime Real Housewives of Orange County viewers cannot deny that Vicki Gunvalson brings a lot to the show. There are Vicki-centered story lines in almost every episode of this show. During the last RHOC episode, Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge claimed that Vicki’s boyfriend Steve Lodge is only with her for money.

We’ve seen this story line with all of Vicki’s relationships, so there is nothing novel about it, but it still infuriates Vicki as much as it always has.

Shannon Beador

It’s taking a little while for new Real Housewives of Orange County cast members Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter to make their mark, but they are on their way. Emily threatened to “kill” Kelly Dodd and Gina somehow blamed Shannon Beador for that argument.

Obviously that did not sit well with Shannon and now she’s calling out Gina for stirring the pot. On a personal level, I don’t blame Shannon for being upset, but as a viewer, I’m all for Gina (and whoever else is stirring things up) to breathe some much-needed life into this show.

Tamra Judge

Out of all the husbands (and boyfriends) in Real Housewives history, Vicki Gunvalson’s man Steve Lodge seems to be one of the least opportunistic of them all. However, that’s not what Vicki’s friend-turned-frienemy Kelly Dodd is claiming. She told Tamra Judge that Steve is only with Vicki for her money. Nevertheless, it seem like appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County is the last thing that Steve wants to do.

Of course, Tamra did what she does best: stirred the pot. She told Vicki what Kelly said the next time she saw her. To be honest, that was the right thing to do, especially if Kelly was spreading that around to other people (which she most likely was), but it’s also setting up a major explosion the next time Vicki and Kelly see each other in person. Not only that, but Tamra also questioned if Steve really loved Vicki… even though she just told him to marry Vicki during the previous episode.

Vicki Gunvalson Says Kelly Dodd “Divorced A Millionaire Hoping For A Billionaire”

It’s a near cardinal sin for anyone to argue with a Real Housewife’s man. Nevertheless, it happens season after season. Kelly Dodd has been at odds with Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Steve Lodge after he spoke out about her in the press.

Now she’s claiming that Steve is only with Vicki for her money, a story line that we’ve seen with her other relationships. Just say it isn’t so! Steve really does seem like one of the good ones. Vicki shared her side of the story and threw some MAJOR shade at Kelly during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night.

Tamra and Eddie

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was jam-packed, wasn’t it? It went from a literal brawl over Shane of all things, to laughing and crying, and in between people were dating, divorcing, apologizing, and maybe even dating people who are using them for their money! People were also getting their livers probed by an alien from planet moon fingers. Which is perfect because Gina Kirscheheiter literally always looks like a character on Star Trek.

Tamra Judge is in her room, drawing hearts on her ankle boot or something when downstairs Gina is literally wrestling Kelly Dodd and Emily Simpson apart. Over Gina’s head, Emily screams “I’ll kill you!” I mean, it’s only warranted because Kelly called Emily’s husband, Shane, a “prick” a “pussy” and a “twerp” among others.

Emily Simpson screams at Kelly Dodd

The last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County ended with Emily Simpson threatening to “kill” Kelly Dodd after Kelly unknowingly referred to her husband Shane Simpson as a “little bitch.” This was the most exciting moment of this season- by far- so of course the last episode ended with a cliffhanger.

The drama returns tonight with a new episode at 9PM on Bravo. According to an episode description from the Bravo website, we pick up right where we left off: “Tamra’s [Judge] birthday party for Eddie [Judge] ends in shambles after an explosive comment is made.”
